There are scattered snow showers with some blue skies and sun at Grandeco this morning again. The recorded accumulation at the base is 2cm of new snow since last night, but there's more up at higher elevations. This might well be one of the last snow storms of the season.

The wind is light this morning, but again cold. All the courses are powder and freshly groomed packed powder.

The Junior Olympic Mogul Team is practicing for an upcoming contest being held this coming Sunday, so the Lavender 28 course area in now open only to participants until further notice.

The Snow Park team is working on a full renewal in the coming days with a new 50m spring session halfpipe, flat table top and skate style obstacle park presently being built. This is scheduled to open on the 1st of April.

Roads up to Deco this morning are icy and snow covered in places, so be sure to come prepared and take care around curves.

Ski resorts around Mt. Bandai are announcing their planned closing dates:

Alts Bandai / Urabandai ski resorts - until 27th March.

After 27th, resorts that remain open in the region will be Grandeco, Nekoma and Minowa.

Nekoma will be closed between 19th-21st and 26th-28 Apr but these resorts all plan to be open until 5th May ---- but whether they can do that or not will totally depend on the snow levels of course, which are less than usual and less than expected. We'll just have to see how things develop over the coming weeks.

The following resorts are now closed:

Listel Ski Fantasia
Numajiri
Inawashiro resort
Inawashiro
Minero
